I was just wondering when it is okay to take Marley for walkes? He only has his first set of shots which he got this past weekend.

Thanks,

Dr. Marie replied:

Hi and thanks for a great question.

I usually recommend waiting until a few days after the second set of vaccinations before taking a pup out to areas where other dogs may be.

If you have friends with dogs and you know they are healthy and up to date on vaccines then it is ok for them to meet. However, I would stay away from public places until after the second set of shots.

Enjoy your new pup!

Dr. Marie.
